Coordinating group elections 2023
The main role of members of the coordinating group is to support communication between different parts of the union and to support branches and working groups to understand what’s happening in the union as a whole and to have their voice heard. Also, the coordinating group has the following responsibilities:
- Develop and oversee union strategies
- Oversee the implementation of decisions of all member meetings
- Support effective coordination between branches and working groups
- Ensure appropriate processes are in place for the management of union staff and the protection of personal information held by the union.
- Uphold the values of the union, and ensure they are being upheld by branches, working groups and members
- Support the development of new branches
- Ensure the sound management of the union’s financial resources
This sounds like a lot, but each member is only asked to take on what they can and all new coordinating group members will be given lots of support and training. The meetings are currently once a month.
How these elections will run

- Voting will happen online, and will open after our upcoming all-member assembly on Sunday 26 November. and be open for 2 weeks. The term is until the next All Member Assembly.
- Because we don’t have a returning officer at the moment, it’s the role of union staff to make sure the election runs according to the process that’s been set out.
